mm: make the vma list be doubly linked
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 20 Aug 2010 23:24:55 +0000 (16:24 -0700)]
It's a really simple list, and several of the users want to go backwards
in it to find the previous vma.  So rather than have to look up the
previous entry with 'find_vma_prev()' or something similar, just make it
doubly linked instead.
